Additional Notes

This PDF sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with some illustrations. Please Note: Not every step is illustrated in this sewing pattern. It is intended for the intermediate sewist.

This is fabulous. super quick to sew up. Am already planning another one.

The fit is as expected and the pattern comes together quickly and easily. The only difficulty I had was I missed the directions for cuffs and neckline on my first read-through of the directions, which left me rather confused after the "completion" of my first sweater--where were the cuffs and the neckline?? I think this was a self-inflicted difficulty, though, as I speed-read the instructions. And beside that complication, the directions were straightforward and easy to follow.

Great basic, can make sweatshirts or t shirts with it. Super comfy!

Love the darts!

I found the sizing a little large and will size down a bit next time.

So very easy to make. I found the underarm fabric too full for me and the neckband a little too long. I will reduce them when I next make the t-shirt. A great t-shirt pattern nonetheless.

The cuff and arm bands are not included in the pattern as cut out pieces, but rather in a chart telling you what size rectangles to cut out. This saves on paper, but I was confused by it at first.

A quick sew with color blocking opportunity.

A perfect pattern for a beginner.

Sews up sooo fast! I didn't even have to look at the instructions. Reverse coverstitching on the hem looks so ready-to-wear. Love this pattern - it's my new go-to sweatshirt!
